Carillon and ID.me Partner to Offer SCVP Full Certificate Path Discovery and Validation (PDVal) Services for Vets.gov Website

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and TYSONS CORNER, VIRGINIA--(Marketwired - June 6, 2016) - ID.me is part of a team of technology vendors lead by Ad Hoc LLC that was awarded Vets.gov Technical Support contract to design, develop and operate Vets.gov. Vets.gov, is a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) new veterans-centered website that will consolidate all of VA's existing services in to a single, self-service user experience. Veterans will be able to access all of VA's information, benefits, and services from one site, with one login, all with a cohesive design organized around their needs.

ID.me brought to this team of technology vendors a proven Identity and Access Management platform that was initially built by Veterans to solve digital access challenges for the Veteran community. This Access Management platform required the capability to do full, fast, reliable and consistent PKI Path Discovery and Validation (PDVal) to allow Veterans to authenticate to Vets.gov website with their Personal Identity Verification (PIV) PKI based credentials.

Carillon's Server-Based Validation Protocol (SCVP) is capable of handling complex trust paths found in cross-certified environments such as the U.S. Federal Bridge PKI (FBPKI). Carillon's SCVP solution provides complete, fast, compliant and affordable PKI credential validation services and was chosen by ID.me on the basis of these merits. Another important consideration for choosing Carillon's SCVP technology was its capability to handle the volumes of requests of the VA community of users that numbers in the hundreds of thousands. Carillon Information Security provides PKI based digital credentials and the tools and expertise to use them.

Completing this Ad Hoc LLC lead team of Technology Vendors are the So Company, a team of widely-published US military Veteran and plain language content writers and Accenture Federal Services, a global technology consulting firm and long-time partner of VA.
